As reported on balidiscovery.com [See: Political Showdown Looming at Padang Bai?] a political tug-of-war is underway between Bali's outgoing Governor Dewa Beratha and the Regent of Karangasem I Wayan Geredeg over the legality of a major tourism development near Padang Bai, on the Island's east coast.

The latest report from BisnisBali says that Karangasem's Bupati, Geredeg, is standing firm on his refusal to obey the order of the Governor and revoke a piece of legislation that paved the way for the construction of the massive Villa Chateau de Bali.

The regional law authored by Geredeg effectively exempted the resort investment from Provincial laws that made the development illegal due to its infringement on "green zones" and sacred "no build" zones surrounding local religious sites.

Geredeg's refusal to budge has prompted a strong reaction from the Chairman of the Forum Peduli Bali (FPB), I Nyoman Pasek. Pasek has labeled Geredeg’s actions in the case as criminal.

Pasek told BisnisBali that Geredeg’s effort to override a provincial regulation with a regional rule of his own making, could subject the Bupati to fines of up to Rp. 500 million (US$53.475) and 5 years in prison.

The Vice-Chairman of the Regional House of Representatives in Karangasem, I Gusti Bagus Karyawan, has sounded a similar warning saying Geredeg should accede to the Governor's order and withdraw the permits for the project already in an advanced stage of construction.
